Elizabeth joins select group of achievers.
ELIZABETH Allen, an agricultural law specialist with the North East's leading law firm Dickinson Dees, has achieved the Fellowship of the Agricultural Law Association (ALA).
The ALA is the UK's leading independent cross-disciplinary organisation dealing with rural business. Allen is one of just 54 people in UK to be awarded the accolade of ALA Fellowship. Allen, pictured, is an associate in the firm's property litigation practice specialising in rural agricultural and farming disputes including agricultural tenancy matters, partnership disputes and advising on all other property law issues such as easements, restrictive covenants and mineral rights on rural land.
She has a wide range of estate and farming clients and regularly appears in the county court, the agricultural land tribunal and in arbitration.
She recently acted in a reported agricultural case which successfully established the rules relating to tenancy succession. She has also conducted a number of mediations as a successful alternative to litigation and will work at assisting clients to find pragmatic solutions to their property-related problems.
Allen said: "ALA Fellowship is a badge of excellence in the sector that I am proud to have achieved.."
John Marshall, senior partner at Dickinson Dees, added: "We are delighted for Elizabeth that her hard work and commitment has been rewarded with this prestigious fellowship.
To be one of less than 60 people to have attained this accolade in the country is a fantastic achievement."
